Recaro makes an excellent after market seat that will adjust to your needs. If you spent $29k already another grand for good seats should be no problem. This car should last you for at least 150000 miles if treated right, You might as well be comfortable.

29k for a Civic? Is it gold-plated? Try adjusting the lumbar setting in the seats. It's a twist knob located about halfway up the seats, and it controls where the support hits your back.

Nothing like a good used Lincoln or Cadillac; or even a Grand Marquis, Crown Vic or Buick. You can rack up the miles in comfort and $20K-$25K buys a lot of gas, not to mention the money you save on insurance. You have to love those power, leather seats with the power lumbar support and the heat. Scrumptious!"There's no replacement of displacement!" - Anonymous

you paid 10 grand too much http://automobiles.honda.com/models/...Category=EXBoy have I found the seat for you!! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Recar...wItemSeriously it probably won't fit your Honda but if it does just put a cover over it! Recaro is the only aftermarket auto seat maker that I'm aware of
